NUJ Dundee - office bearers re-elected

NUJ Dundee held their AGM in DVA's Camperdown Room on Tuesday 19 March. The Rev Erik Cramb (pictured standing) told a busy room about the Pensioners' Forum's support for a new social enterprise which helps bereaved families avoid large funeral debts. He also said there were efforts to set up a fund to help those who have no money at all to bury their loved ones, particularly people who have died young.

The branch re-elected Ian Roache as Chair, Jim Symons as Secretary and Jimmy Black as Treasurer.
